There's only six more days to go until the window shuts and Manchester United are still knees deep in drama. Jasmine Baba rounds up Friday's news...

"Whilst we're on the subject of the Red Devils', a deal looks to be imminent for Yerry Mina after going from 8/11 to 1/5, somehow swooping him from under Everton's nose."

Martial could finally get his wish

How do you get a player to happily stay in your club? Not fining him £18,000 whilst he was away looking after his new-born baby and wife is a start.

The drama at Manchester United is still in full swing but it does look like this chapter may be coming to a close. Anthony Martial's odds to leave were slashed from 5/1 to 5/2 to move to Bayern Munich, and in return, Robert Lewandowski to move to Manchester United 5/1 to 9/4 as a striker swap looks to be on the cards.

Whilst we're on the subject of the Red Devils', a deal looks to be imminent for Yerry Mina after going from 8/11 to 1/5, somehow swooping him from under Everton's nose.

Also on the defender front, it also looks like Harry Maguire won't be joining as he drifts to 3/1 and Toby Alderweireld floating around at 10/11.

Tottenham cooking up a treat

I would love to bring you an update on Jack Grealish moving to Tottenham, however he's slightly drifted from 1/5 to 1/2, in what is a cloud of uncertainty over the signing. Especially now Aston Villa boss Steve Bruce says that Spurs are nowhere near their valuation of the player.

However Spurs have set their sights on a new transfer target on Bournemouth's Lewis Cook. The 21-year old had a solid campaign in the Premier League last season and might be more favourable than Grealish if Aston Villa are being stubborn over their main man.

Cook is currently 5/4 to move to the North London club.

Transfer request

Don't get me wrong, Wilfried Zaha is still 8/13 to stay at Crystal Palace but with rumours suggesting he wants to leave and a possibility of a transfer request being handed in, the odds of him moving to either Chelsea or Tottenham are 7/4 and 7/2 respectively.

Chelsea are also battling against Real Madrid for the signing of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic at 5/2. Should their pursuit for Zaha come to nothing, then the Serbian midfielder who plays for Lazio will be firmly on the Blues' shopping list.

If you are following the market, it seems like Chelsea should be buying a midfielder, however the odds for their players to stay at Stamford Bridge who were suspected to leave earlier are shortening, with Willian now 4/9 and Eden Hazard still 1/3 to stay in West London. Expect an upset somewhere around.
